#### Are We There Yet? The Search for a Theory of Everything

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 21.00We live in exciting times. The frontiers of physics have been pushed to unprecedented horizons. The Holy Grail of fundamental physics research today is to find and describe a theory that explains, at least in principle, all physical phenomena, which in turns explains chemistry, biology and other material sciences. This, however, is not without controversy.... more...

#### Field, Force, Energy and Momentum in Classical Electrodynamics

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 89.00For the past 100 years physicists have debated the nature of the momentum of light inside material media. Hermann Minkowski, for example, asserts that within a transparent dielectric the momentum of a photon is the photon’s vacuum momentum multiplied by the refractive index of the dielectric. An opposing theory postulated by Max Abraham, contends... more...

#### Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2008; US$ 55.00Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves is an outgrowth of several years of work. There have been no recent books on integral equation methods. There are books written on integral equations, but either they have been around for a while, or they were written by mathematicians. Much of the knowledge in integral equation methods... more...

#### Physical Systems

Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 134.29This book offers a new philosophical interpretation of classical mechanics and the Special Theory of Relativity, in which motions of parts and wholes of physical systems are taken to be fundamental, prior to spacetime, material properties and laws of motion. more...

#### Wide-Band Slow-Wave Systems

CRC Press 2012; US$ 100.00The field of electromagnetics has seen considerable advances in recent years, based on the wide applications of numerical methods for investigating electromagnetic fields, microwaves, and other devices. Wide-Band Slow-Wave Systems: Simulation and Applications presents new technical solutions and research results for the analysis, synthesis, and... more...

#### Strong and Superstrong Pulsed Magnetic Fields Generation

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 182.00Strong pulsed magnetic fields are important for several fields in physics and engineering, such as power generation and accelerator facilities. Basic aspects of the generation of strong and superstrong pulsed magnetic fields technique are given, including the physics and hydrodynamics of the conductors interacting with the field as well... more...

#### A Focus of Discoveries

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 84.00 US$ 76.44In 1887, the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) was originally founded as the Physikalisch-Technische Reichsanstalt (PTR) in Berlin in order to promote basic research in physics. It subsequently developed into the largest research center worldwide as a place where scientists could concentrate exclusively on their research subject, and served... more...

#### Quick Finite Elements for Electromagnetic Waves

Artech House 2009; US$ 153.00This practical book and accompanying software enables you to quickly and easily work out challenging microwave engineering and high-frequency electromagnetic problems using the finite element method (FEM) Using clear, concise text and dozens of real-world application examples, the book provides a detailed description of FEM implementation, while the... more...

#### Electromagnetic Properties of Multiphase Dielectrics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 123.10This book offers models and numerical solution strategies for analyzing the coupled response of materials with tailored dielectric properties by direct simulation using standard laptop/desktop equipment. Covers coupled systems, homogenization theory and more. more...
